You'll have to be more specific mate. Which smart group(s) are you stuck with?

I found @loceee 's guide to be more than sufficient. It's part of the patchoo wiki.

Keep in mind the original code hasn't been maintained in a while. I have a fork that's a little more up to date. I also know @loceee wants to write it's replacement at some point too.

I have merged in the outstanding PRs, so the master branch should be pretty good to roll on all current versions of OS X. Sorry for my tardiness! Back to the world of MacAdmining, but have some other priorities on DEP/VPP for iOS before I sink my teeth back into the macOS. Thanks so much for contributions!

Let us know what you are stuck on around the smart groups @casareanderson

I have been testing Patchoo as well and found that the triggers that are on the site will not work correctly as they are pointing to the old location of the JAMF binary.

Where they packaged triggers point to:
/usr/bin/jamf policy -trigger every120 -randomDelaySeconds 300
/usr/bin/jamf policy -trigger patchoo -randomDelaySeconds 1800

Where they should point to to work:
/usr/local/jamf/bin/jamf policy -trigger every120 -randomDelaySeconds 300
/usr/local/jamf/bin/jamf policy -trigger patchoo -randomDelaySeconds 1800

Used LaunchContorol v1.28.4 to edit the settings and packaged them back up to be pushed out. Suggest that you add the icons its looking for in the 0patchoo.sh as well.

Anybody know how to fix this? In this example, Adobe Flash and Google Chrome both have updates. I have manually added names in the Info section of the Packages, but still nothing. ASU updates do show up correctly, however. a203fcc458354e97877bf24e8118b4ef

It's working nicely for me, but I'm using my own cocoadialog based fork of Patchoo. https://github.com/franton/patchoo

I'm using 3.0.999 of CD and 0.9960 of Patchoo.

Definitely take a look at @franton 's fork. It's received far more love than the main repo for a while.

Has anyone experienced the .pkg icon disappearing from the notification window? It use to display, but at some point just stopped working. Not sure what changed.

@nvandam I've found that occurs with api user permissions being at fault. I'm still working on narrowing things down but that's the root cause.

@nimoyjohnson That's a cocoaDialog bug. Not much we can do about that.

Has anyone converted their Patchoo script to use something other than CocoaDailog? I'd hate to reinvent the wheel with this one if someone wouldn't mind sharing.
